I met Iris Blobel this week (courtesy of Facebook). She told me she was born and raised in Germany and immigrated to Australia only in the late 1990’s and that having had the travel bug most of her life, she spent quite some time living in Scotland and London, as well as in Canada, where she actually had met her future husband. I think that we’ll say she’s Australian (mainly).
Her love for putting her stories onto paper has only recently emerged, but she now states that her laptop is a constant companion. I’m sure we can all identify with that one.
Iris resides west of Melbourne with her husband and her beautiful two daughters, as well as her two dogs. In addition to her job at a private school she also presents a German Program at the local Community Radio making good use of all that travelling.
All of this brings us neatly to her latest publication ‘I Think I love you’ in her Australian Sports Stars series.
I Think I love you
Markus DeLeon and Sarah Winter’s lives couldn’t be more different…
After three years away as the goalkeeper for an English soccer club, Markus has been happy to be back in Australia. He’d missed his family and friends, including Sarah. He’s known her since childhood, and often protected her from the teasing of other children and the troubling consequences of a broken home.
When they attend their friends’ wedding, a new light is cast on their friendship…
Sarah is fresh out of a bad relationship, and Markus has always been the one she can confide in. Maybe it’s the magic of the wedding—or how stunning he looks in a tux—but the attraction between them intensifies in ways they’d never imagined.
But sometimes when risking what you have, you might lose everything…
Following a passionate encounter, Markus isn’t sure how to handle this new aspect of his relationship with Sarah, and literally flees the scene for the coast. Sarah is unsure how to react to his sudden departure, but is soon knocked off course by misunderstandings and a frightening family emergency.
Markus realises his mistake and wants to make things right, but he also faces obstacles. He’s been offered an exciting new job, and an attractive newcomer to the neighbourhood is eager to claim his attention, though the last thing Markus needs is another confusing relationship.
Can Sarah and Markus face the fear and doubt—and the potential loss of their lifelong friendship—to give their love a chance?
